On 12/5, we bought a Dyson stick while we were waiting for our kitchen remodel to be completed. My husband put it together and all it does is pulse.

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it can be due to a battery of the cleaner. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

Tip

Dyson DC59 and DC62 - vacuum makes a pulsing sound (removing a blockage)


Dyson Digital Slim DC59 and DC62 cordless vacuum cleaners are engineered to make a pulsing sound to let you know if they're blocked. This could happen if an item too large for the machine is accidentally vacuumed up. Our video support guide will help you identify and remove any obstructions from the motorised floor tool, wand or bin inlet.

My Dyson v6 with purple dust container, power surge whilst vacuuming and then it stops all together even though it's fully charged


Hi Sally, it's Jack at Dyson.

Your V6 machine will pulse to let you know if something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could occur if there's a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's also worth checking the bin inlet flap can open and close freely, and isn't jammed shut with debris.

Our video guide should help get your machine up and running again:

Why havemy dyson DC 59 has stated to pulse on and off after afew seconds of working?


Hi Dave, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59's motor will make a rapid pulsing noise to warn you if something is stopping airflow from passing through the machine. The motor will then shut off for protection.

This should be quick and easy to resolve by checking the motorised floor tool, wand and bin inlet for blockages. It's also a good idea to give the washable pre-filter a rinse in cold water if this hasn't been done recently - we recommend washing it at least once a month. Make sure the filter is allowed to dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing it.

I'm confident this will resolve the issue. If you would like further assistance after giving these steps a try, please call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My dylon DC59 isn't running smoothly ie it pulses, this didn't happen a week ago when I bought it?


Hi Sue, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59 will pulse to let you know if something is blocking airflow from moving through the machine. You can resolve this easily by checking the floor tool, wand and bin inlet for any obstructions - the pre-filter may also need a wash. Just follow the steps shown in our video guide:

Surging/Pulsing when in contact with floor


Hi Cathy, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC35 Animal will make a pulsing sound to indicate that something is blocking the airflow through the machine. Although I note you've already checked for this, the issues you've described strongly suggest a blockage inside the motorised floor tool that you may have missed. This would also explain the loss of performance you've noticed.

In this instance I would encourage you to get in touch with our experts directly so we can walk you through some troubleshooting checks, as we should be able to resolve this right over the phone. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

We'll look forward to hearing from you.
